Rotary Club of Jefferson City’s signature annual service project is sponsoring Student Government Day (SGD).  This year’s SGD is scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, 2019.  High school students from Jefferson City and across District 6080, which includes Rolla High School, are nominated by their teachers or local Rotarians to attend a half-day program that provides the students with a unique and more personal view of state government in Jefferson City.

Once there, the students will be able to witness legislative debates; visit with local legislators such as Senator Justin Brown; tour the Missouri Supreme Court; and hear from a panel of executive department personnel representing MoDOT, the Department of Education, and Homeland Security.  The event will close with a luncheon at the Capital Plaza Hotel featuring high ranking officials from each branch of state government and fellowship with other Rotarians with significant  governmental service.

Rotary Club of Rolla is proud to sponsor and transport this year’s delegates from Rolla High School for Student Government Day at the Missouri State Capitol!
